Thoughts:
I have always enjoyed martial arts movies, I still remember as a kid waiting for the Sunday afternoon martial arts Chinese movie, their staple being badly dubbed and full of action. These movies later got their own homage with the now classic 2002 movie Kung Pow: Enter the Fist.

Every once in a while, a Bruce Lee movie would be shown on those lazy Sunday afternoons, a cause for celebration indeed. At the time, I had no idea why they don’t show more Bruce Lee movies, of course now I know better.

The book is a collection of articles, most are written to accommodate the readership of movie magazines and for PR purposes. The way many are written and structured, I have to think they are translated. Many of the articles rehash the same information (after all, Bruce Lee’s career was fruitful, but short), but it seemed all the writers fell to the charming movie star. In the interviews, Mr. Lee shares some of his philosophies about life and work.

The strength of this book, I felt, was in the interesting footnotes the editor provided at the end of each chapter. The footnotes shed more light and context on the bland articles, and include many interesting anecdotes themselves.
